The daughter of the late Steve Irwin revealed how they made the difficult decision to have no guests present at the nuptials held at Australia Zoo, to ‘keep everyone safe’, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Bindi and Chandler announced they were expecting their first child together in August, just five months after tying the knot, and the following month revealed they were having a daughter.

The Wildlife Warrior and her husband welcomed Grace Warrior Irwin Powell, who was born on their first wedding anniversary.

‘Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s,’ she continued. 

‘Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior. Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad.’ 

Steve died tragically 14 years ago when Bindi was eight years old. The Crocodile Hunter was pierced in the chest by a stingray barb in 2006.
